Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. A Harvard professor, she has a successful husband and three grown children. She soon finds herself in the rapidly downward spiral of Alzheimer's Disease. Her short-term memory may be hanging on by a couple of frayed threads, but she is still Alice.

Sensitively dealt with, this was not a depressing book. It provided an insight from the sufferer’s point of view. The characters were well drawn and their reactions to the illness credible. 8/10
